Published Jul 10, 2015Dance music vets the Chemical Brothers have revealed yet another grooveable preview form their forthcoming Born in the Echoes LP. Following teases featuring guests like St. Vincent and Q-Tip, the pair have now premiered a team-up with Beck, which is called "Wide Open."
The track was played on L.A. radio station KEXP yesterday (July 9). It features a chill kick-snare beat, which is cocooned by various soul-warming synth tones. Beck uses a light and lovelorn approach to detail how someone has been slipping away from him. Despite the four-on-the-floor pacing, it's a heartbreaker filled with melancholy melodies and reflective lyrics.
